Adventure With Danan - Overland Bound - Ocala National Forest - Camping

Ocala National Forest

There are TONS of places to go camping. You can stick to the designated camp grounds, or you can camp off the grid. When I went camping with some fellow Overland Bound members (learn about Overland Bound), we opted to camp off the grid. Many of the members and their rigs are fully equipped to be off the grid for quite a few days at a time. We found a very nice spot next to Sellers Lake (29º 7′ 21.87″ N, 81º 38′ 19.05″ W)

The trails out here that I drove are mostly sand. I didn’t often need to engage 4x4, but there were several times where I would have been very stuck if I didn’t have 4x4.

Another thing is that many (if not most) of the trails that were not major dirt roads through the forest were quite narrow. My brand new Tundra now has tons of little scratches all down the sides of the truck. I’m not upset about it because it’s part of the game, but if you are thinking of taking your $85,000.00 Land Rover there, you might want to consider staying on the major roads, though you’ll miss a lot of beautiful spots… I had my truck detailed afterward and got rid of about 3/4 of the scratches and scrapes, but some are there to stay unless I pay for a full machine polish.
